My review of Co Co. Sala

The dessert lounge concept — popular in New York and other major cities — hadn’t made it to Washington until May when Co Co. Sala opened downtown. With inventive cocktails, a swanky atmosphere and small, delectable bites, the new business brings a welcomed twist to the local dining scene.

Co Co. Sala’s menu is divided into savory and sweet, with the savory items divided into four tapas-style categories: macaroni and cheese, crab cakes, sliders and salads. The waitress’ suggestion was to order three to four tapas per person, along with the dessert courses, but unless you’re starving, two to three per person should be sufficient.

The tapas selection was hit or miss. The bacon macaroni and cheese is a rich dish, filled with pieces of bacon and topped with a slice of chocolate covered bacon. This certainly is not an option for those who don’t like bacon, but if you do, it’s worth it, since the crisp bacon provides a nice bite. Shrimp and classic mac-and-cheese selections are also on the menu.
